November 3, 1989 HI The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana i Bishop's Forum 9 I r By BISHOP GERALD A. GETTELFINGER Community prayer: celebrating our oneness Recently I was invited to participate in what is known in Evansville as "Community of Praise." It is such a simple but marvelous opportunity to join in community prayer with our brothers and sisters of Christian faith. Although it is indeed a gather- ing of members of different Christian communities of faith, it is indeed celebration of community at prayer. You may or may not recall that the fathers of the Second Vatican Council wrote and then issued a "Decree on Ecumenism." In it, they called each of us to open our minds and hearts to members of other faiths. Even though we do not believe as others do, we are encouraged to know what others believe that we might also give them the respect that is due. There is a very large number of our brothers and sisters who do believe in Jesus as our Lord and Savior as we do. Although they dc not belong to our Church, being baptized, they have a bond with us in faith that is unifying -- not dividing. Though we have differences, that bond is one that does bring us together and gives us reason to celebrate. As we celebrate our oneness, we are reminded that Jesus prayed that "they may be one, as you, Father, are in me and I in you...so that the world may believe that you sent me." Praying to Almighty God together is certainly a way that we can demonstrate the beginnings of unity. We have come a long way since the decree given almost 25 years ago. I grew up in a rural predominantly Protestant community, however, I never had the opportunity to celebrate public prayer with our Protestant brothers and sisters. We indeed did respect each other, but common or community prayer was usually limited to the "Lord's Prayer." We were different even in its form. In recent years, I have had the great joy of praying with them on the occasion of anniversaries and funerals, prayers rooted in a common faith. I am happy to participate in the upcoming "Community of Praise" evening on Friday even- ing, Nov. 10, 1989. Please see the ad in this issue of the Message. I invite you to join with us. Perhaps, through our united participation there, this part of the world wili begin to recognize that Christian unity can he realized. If you can't join us, pray with us nonetheless.
